Amazing bike that ZR-7. Wish bikes like that were available here.
Hey by any chance has the owner changed the rear tire on the maroon r1? The pattern looks like the one on the MT-01.

Do post more pics if possible.

Yesterday I came across a guy in my area with a black R1. He had bought it recently (used), he got it from a pilot. He insisted that it was an official R1 though it had a DL registration. He got it for 8.5L with a lot of after market parts. Two Bros exhausts, braided brake lines, racing chain, gold color plated clutch and brake levers, similar grips even the rims were painted in gold. The owner also gave away original parts along with the bike and a Joe Rocket helmet.

Did not take pics as was too spell bound by the bike

Cheers

In the las picture from the TVM lot, is that a black XX on the right? Running a 2 x 1 exhaust? More pictures?

Hey manson,

It seems like a CBR 600 F to me, I may be wrong though.

Just asking out of curiosity - what was the price it went for?
Would also love to know the going rate for the 2009 models of the Yam YZF-R6 models.
Thanks in advance.

Heck yeah! I stay at IC Colony and yes he's even got a paddock stand, even the pegs for it are golden

The guy got it for 8.5L but he said that the owner was ready to give it in stock state for 7L its because of these aftermarket parts that the price went up. Also he's got all the original parts, so thats nice. He's also got a Puig screen.

BTW, do you stay close by? And how are you so well connected with these imports? :-)

Is the bike official? I mean the one sold by Yamaha in India or was the guy bluffing.

Cheers

My friend was ready to give it for 8L stock and not 7. Yes, that is an official R1 bought from Delhi Scooters showroom.

I had got the gold swingarm spools for the bike. The ones bought from the showroom were of aluminium finish. All 4 headlights are HID's if you didn't notice. Its a sight at night.

Well, it looks like the DRI has finally paused to take a breath.

Saw a ZX14R on NDA road on Sunday. A Honda CBR and an R1 near Aundh. Nice to see the bikes coming out of the hiding places. Couldnt get pics as I was tailing the bikes enjoying the sound.

Those 4 HID's were a sight during the day as well!
So thats what a official R1 will fetch when sold. That bodes well for guys like me, mebbe I can realistically think of buying a 2-3 year old R1 for around 6.5L.

Which part of Bombay are you from?

Cheers

If this is a Plasma Blue ZX14, I have seen this near Koregaon Park. Doesn't have too many add-ons and goes away rather quietly. But that plasma blue looks amazing on this god of a biker.

Yeah it was a blue ZX 14-R. Very unusual color shade, subtle and yet very nice.

There is a blue zx-14 in the group, that is one snazzy looking bike. Only if the owner had some matching gear!

Just for the sake of clarification, the current owner bought it from your friend, your friend bought it from his cousin who had bought it from the original owner. Do the math.

My friends cousin was only on the RC book. He never really owned the bike as my friend had initially not told anyone at home he's buying it so the cousin agreed to have it transferred to his name since the surname is the same.

So, the second owner (cousin) probably just went for a small spin before the bike came to Bombay. He didn't pay a buck for the bike .
